A perfect example

Posted on 11 October 2002  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

Continuing our countdown to Thursday's Tottenham Tribute Match at the Lane, Colin Calderwood recalls the impact Jurgen Klinsmann made on the club on his arrival in 1994.

Colin Calderwood describes Jurgen Klinsmann as a perfect example of how a footballer should conduct himself both on and off the pitch.

"It changed the atmosphere around the club when he joined," said reserve team boss Colin. "For the first time since I'd been at the club there was a surge of enthusiasm and togetherness and he had a lot to do with that.

"But the boys liked him because he was very genuine and wanted to be liked. He gained everyone's respect because he was a thoroughly decent guy.

"He was a world-famous player and had an massive injection of enthusiasm for the club when he joined.

"He endeared himself to the fans not just because he was a good player but because of his effort, energy and work rate and enthisiasm he brought to the game.

"That wasn't just on a Saturday, it was the same through the week.

"He worked hard and is a perfect example to any player how to conduct yourself both on and off the pitch.

"He's reaped the rewards, of course, but He's thoroughly nice man off the pitch. He was dedicated and single-minded in a number of things but you need that to get to where he got to in the game."
